Nenya´s Top 10

Some days ago Nuit sent me a pm and asked me if I´d like to post a ‘Top 10’ of my favorite creations here in this thread.
I was very surprised and all I can say is that I feel really honored to post my work here.

Thank you so much for asking me, Nuit.

It was not easy to decide which graphic or drawing should be in my ‘Top 10’ but.…

…. here they are:

This is one of the first signatures I´ve made and I used it some time ago here at OL. It was my first attempt
at making something different with photoshop. Some members asked me which technique I´ve used for this siggy
and this was the beginning of some very good friendships here at OLove.

That’s the reason why this siggy is very special for me

I´ve made this one for the board banner contest this year and was
very happy that it was actually chosen. I´ve never thought that one of
my graphics would be the board banner

My first BHD graphic. I´ve made it for the graphic challenge in June.
There aren´t so many screencaps of Orlando as Todd Blackburn but
I really like this one. He looks so vulnerable just like a scared boy
who just realized the reality of going to war.

One of my favorite walls. I tried to make a wall in the style of the LotR posters and I´m really happy with the result

My current calendar wall was again an entry for the graphic challenge.
I wanted to make it very simple and to focus on the pic. I love
this Orlando pic very much…he seems to be so lost in his thoughts.

After I´ve made a lot of graphics I tried to make some drawings, too.

This is my favorite Orlando drawing. It took me a long time to finish it
but I think it was worth the time

Legolas is very difficult to draw because he´s so flawless. And this
is my first Legolas drawing which actually looks like him

Then Tonny (Andnolewen) ‘challenged’ me. We both drew the same
Will Turner pic. She called it the one with ‘the most difficult
Will-killer-eyebrows-look’ . And it was a real challenge for me
because I adore Tonny´s drawing so much….. actually her drawings
inspired me to draw again

And I have to include this one because this is the first drawing I didn´t
make for me but for a very good friend and I´m very happy Helen likes
it so much

Balian and Will are my favorite Orlando characters but it took me a
long time to make my first Balian drawing. So this is my latest drawing
and also the first one of Balian

So these are my Top 10 and I hope you like them as much as I do

Icon and sig by me. Thanks Kat and Lola for the tuts

Thank you for selecting this absolutely stunning pieces Nenya! I am hopelessly in awe of both the graphics and the pencil drawings since I can do neither. The graphics you have chosen are like little bursts of memories and really made me smile.

But oh Will Turner...wow...that is simply awesome!

Congrats on joining out 'celebration hall' you deserve it XX

Nenya, I still try to find words for your work. Your drawings are incredible and I love your graphics. So I'm not surprised that Nuit asked you.

Nenya! what could I say... all you work is amazing , but your drawings are beyond words! My favourite is Legolas at Lothlorien, you caught his expression, his lips, his eyes, all in it is so perfect *o*

You deserved a place here

Nenya, it is so nice to see you in here. You are a very talented artist.

I can't imagine how you managed to narrow down your selections to just 10 Nenya. I love all of your art digital and hand drawn. You have made a great selection though.

I was so excited to hear Nuit has chosen you to join us here.
You are incredibly talented in many many ways and I am soooo happy you were inspired by me to start drawing again.
It makes me proud to have set you off on creating such beauties!

I love them all, I especially love the Will we did together.
And when you finally created Balian: it came out a masterpiece!
I love the sofness in your style, the details are amazing. The way you draw skin is just fabulous.

And then I haven't even commented on the digital art.
That LOTR wallpaper has to be my favourite and the calender ..

I'm so glad you are here to share this all with us, and I'm particularly glad we got to know each other so much better..
and all because of a simple drawing eh?

Thanks SO much for everything Carola!!

I have only just seen this as well - not sure what planet I have been on. Beautiful work and the pencil drawings are just amazing - you have that elusive thing captured that makes them the character!!

... and here is yet another one who has just realised that she's never posted in here before. So shameful...

Nenya, your works are amazing! I love your graphics so much. And those drawings are simply breath-taking! They make mine certainly fade in comparison.

I was very happy to see that you were being celebrated Nenya. Aside from generally loving your work when ever you post something new, I quite often find when voting on challenge graphics that there's at least a couple of your entries in my selections. Wonderful graphics and the drawings just leave me in awe
